Hello,
No Invisalign is not able to move your 2nd molar and wisdom tooth to fill a gap left from a missing tooth. An implant and crown is suggested for a missing tooth, but would suggest you have an in person consultation with a dentist or orthodontist to discuss the best course of action for you.
Best of Luck!
